at u.s. 101, a tow truck is on the scene. a big rig lost its load, turns out that was a mobile home, one lane is squeaking by. this is a bad spot. give yourself extra time or take 280 as an alternate. laura, back to you. >> thanks for the update. for the latest traffic and news updates check out nbc bay area morning news on facebook. a local news update coming up for you in about a half hour. >>> 7:30 on this thursday morning, july 7, 2011. that was casey anthony's reaction in an orlando courtroom about an hour ago, as a judge sentenced her to four years in prison for lying to investigators, but with time served, and good behavior, she could be released in a matter of weeks, possibly even sooner. >>> i'm ann curry alongside david gregory, who's in for matt this morning. just ahead we'll have more on the sentencing. >> right. one of the big questions, will she cash in our her fame once a free woman? is she planning on having a baby? what surprising letters reveal. >>> also ahead, new details about a big scandal that's rocking england. a popular tabloid newspaper is accused of hacking
. the good news is, the pattern is changing. it's going to take a little while. right now here's that big upper-level ridge, but we're getting a little cooler air coming in. this, though, back in canada, this is where the real relief comes. as we move into the early part of next week, by tuesday, the heat breaks in the north east. seasonal in the mid atlantic states. unfortunately for our friends in the south and the southwest and gulf coast the heat goes on. ann? >> thank you very much. we'll get the rest of the forecast coming up. let's turn to what anne thompson was talking about, the idea of how dangerous the temperatures are. we're have dr. nancy snyderman with more tips. just remind us. who is most us is is sepsuscept? >> the heat wave like this, elderly and the very young people with breathing conditions. but right now, frankly, everyone is at risk. it's a reminder that as many people die of heat-related illnesses than all the natural disasters. that includes tornadoes, hurricanes, snow issues. number one thing, ann, is called heat stroke. that's where you're literally, your core b
if a big bank goes under. second, it said to wall street firms, you can't take the same kind of reckless risks that led to the crisis. and third, it put in place the stronger -- the strongest consumer protections in history. now, to make sure that these protections worked - so ordinary people were dealt with fairly, so they could make informed decisions about their finances - we didn't just change the law. we changed the way the government did business. for years, the job of protecting consumers was divided up in a lot of different agencies. so if you had a problem with a mortgage lender, you called one place. if you had a problem with a credit card company, you called somebody else. it meant there were a lot of people who were responsible, but that meant nobody was responsible. and we changed that. we cut the bureaucracy and put one consumer watchdog in charge, with just one job -- looking out for regular people in the financial system. now, this is an idea that i got from elizabeth warren, who i first met years ago. back then -- this is long before the financial crisis -- elizabeth wa
amendment rights. >> a big part of it is how well you're doing it. i did a survey and i asked people who are voters whether they watch fox news or not and i found that 67% of republicans watch fox news several times a week or more. that you knew. but 54% of independents watched it several times a week or more. and 21% of democrats watched it several times a week or more. so there really is an effort here to try to demonize a source of information. and, you know, you guys don't make this stuff up. the stuff you're reporting is stuff that's happening. you know, pugh research did a study during the last campaign that as far as i'm concerned is definitive. they looked at the fox news stuff. not like we're doing now which is opinion. but the news part. the 6:00 and 7:00 news broadcast. and they did the number of seconds that were devoted to positive and negative coverage of each candidate. and the only network that came close to parody between positive and negative on obama and on mccain was fox news. the others were skewed four and five to 1 negative on mccain and positive on obama. >> spea
and dime the people who need it most but when it comes to war, there's a big, fat blank check. we need to be honest with ourselves. we need to be honest with each other. across the country, the americans, hard working, tax paying citizens who oppose war. they oppose their hard earned dollars being sent overseas to support 10 long years of war. but let me be clear. they do not oppose paying their taxes. they are not anarchists rr anti-government activists. but as conscientious objectors to war these americans want their taxes invested here at home. think want to provide food for the homeless, pave roads and strong schools. they want medicare and social security to exist for their parents, their children and their grandchildren. they want their tax dollars to care for soldiers and their families when they return home. they will see an end and cure to cancer. they want a cure for aids. they want to see small business thrive. and innovation become the en-in of our economy. they want high speed rail like in asia. they want transit systems that are safe and get people where they knead to go.
in transforming themselves, she's one of the big reasons why. please help me in welcoming to the stage, liz schuller. [applause] >> thank you. all right. thank you, barry, for the introduction. and i'd like to think raj for raising the bar. thanks a lot for the rest of us and not those creative messaging tools that we all need to address inequality. i wish i would have heard her before my speech. so why am i here as part of this panel? the whole point of what i want to talk to you today is the power of collective action and how it could counter the rise in inequality and how unions fit into that picture. now, when i think about inequality, especially, as of late, i think about those teachers in wisconsin, construction workers in ohio, nurses in new hampshire, who have been locked out and denied their basic rights to collective bargaining. we've seen what it looks like the state capital in wisconsin and we show you now what's happening in office buildings all across this country. ♪ >> here's to america's workers. when the economy was down, they sacrificed. during tough times when executive
the big fight's going going to be over the debt ceiling limit. that's where the hard negotiations are going to be put out. and then they will probably be given a new number, and they'll have to revisit that bill that they've worked on in committee and meet the new number. so if that's what happens, it's probably a good thing. host: so first things first. guest: look, here's what each department or each function of government is going to be getting, and then work out what you think you can get, the most bang for the buck, so to speak. host: let's get to calls for you. we're going to begin with a call from los angeles. michelle is a democrat there. you're on for david keating of the club for growth. caller: given that you made the comments about t republican candidate mitt romney has developed an unshakable reputation as a flip-flop per uses federal powers to coerce taxpayers, and tim pawlenty is hard to pin down, who do you like? guest: well, what the club for we haveohas been doing, published a series of white papers on many of the presidential candidates, all of those that have d
's projected to cut more, $917 billion over ten years. >> it is a test. this is a big step trying to get control of our deficit and our debt. >> reporter: in an interview for brian williams for a sunday special, "taking the hill inside congress," boehner played down a lot of opposition from his own members. >> mr. speaker, is it fair to say you have a bit of a rebellion on your hands? or do you feel -- >> i have a little bit of rebellion on my hands every day. it comes with the territory. >> you're not worry? >> never let them see you sweat. >> reporter: the speaker is getting heat from democrats too. 50 signed a letter saying they would block the plan because it would force us once again to face the threat of defaulting in five or six months. harry reid wants to kill the boehner bill and get one of his own. >> i'm disappointed bohnev eed . good person. he's painted himself in a corner. >> reporter: they played this film clip from ben affleck's movie to fire up their members. then upset democrats jumped at the chance to show it again. >> going to hurt some people. >> this is a political
for big oil and wall street executives. this bill's actually more extreme than the republican budget passed in april calling for deeper cuts and more hardships for the middle class and older americans. in fact, this bill does nothing to create jobs, nor invest in the roads, bridges, clean energy technology and job training that would really get our economy moving. in short, h.r. 2560 will stifle growth, hurt middle class families and undercut america's seniors. in my district there are over 93,000 social security beneficiaries and over 85,000 medicare enrollees. on behalf of my constituents and for future generations i stand in strong opposition to this bill and the rule. i know that there are those on the other side of the aisle who want to support a reasonable plan to reduce the deficit. this is not the plan. i urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reject this dangerous proposal and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back the balance of her time. the gentleman from georgia. mr. woodall: mr. speaker, at this time i'm please
of the big package. we think that estimate was given in 2009 and the authors of the estimate think that its low, and we are very concerned that it's going to be much higher than that and we will continue to get much higher than that. and obviously the collection the states and governments that rely on the revenue, but those folks in those little towns across the country that are trying to make a living selling to the people in their community that have an automatic six to 8% price disadvantage simply because the truck is driving out hundred and of packages is having a devastating effect on small and medium-size retailers. i get we too many telephone calls from the country that are in their view being killed by that price differential. >> he raises the point some of the leading proponents of applying the sales tax online or wal-mart and target national retailers who have also been blamed by small retailers for price pressures and that sort of thing. how would you respond to that? >> they are major proponents of this, but they are not alone. i spend a lot of time talking to the after market a
to think for me. they don't know i'm a little brother who doesn't like it when my big brothers tell me what to do, because they aren't always responsible for their own things. i don't tell my brothers what to do with their money. i'm smarter than they think i am. they should follow the rules." i'd ask that the entire letter be printed at the completion of my speech. and i thank eric -- the presiding officer: without objection. mr. enzi: and i thank him for his sage advice. it is disappointing to be here today dreask the unite addressid states senate on a topic that we should have dealt with months ago. our country is in a financial crisis. erskine bowles, the cochairman of the deficit commission, coined the situation we face as -- quote -- "the most predictable economic crisis in history" -- end quote. and yet there is no clear path forward to deal with both the short-term need to raise the debt limit and the long-term need to get spending under control. i'm disappointed we have made this discussion about the debt ceiling instead of our ever-increasing spending. when you spend beyond your m
house wants a big deal. a $4 trillion debt deal. but that deal must not come from cuts to social security or medicare, for that matter. millions of senior citizens, in their lifetime built this country, for fought for this country, who depend on these social security checks for their economic lifeline want to see if their concerns are a big deal to us. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from kansas rise? >> i ask permission to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. today i rise in defense of small business owners across the country who are attempting to survive under a mountain of taxes, rules and regulations coming out of washington, d.c. mr. yoder: seven out of 10 new jobs in this country are created by small business owners. to get our economy back on track we know it's these innovators and entrepreneurs who will start creating jobs. entrepreneurship is at a
if your dreams are not big enough and they scare you, then they are not big enough to beat the dreams of dhaka to scare you and we have to dream about when we are really on the team and when we are really on the team we may take one for the team occasionally. only when it is our turn. but if they are not letting us on the team we can't take it anymore, and the fact that this is really serious, this whole thing about social security, about health care, all of this could come unraveled, and these dharma courts the decision and all was that, these are all impacting women and children and all of the cuts are women and children that is not the america that i am a part of. so, when in, people were going to tell you ten reasons they are mad they don't want to go vote, just tell them get mad and go vote. but the real reason to go vote, or you will not believe how bad your next time. thank you for everything you've been doing. thank you. thank you.

is spending your money wisely. the pentagon says they're too big to be audited. can't bance their books. there was $100 billion unaccounted for in the becoming year. $5 billion that the g.a.o. sound. duplicate programs. 82 different programs training workers. could we not maybe deal with one federal program training workers instead of 82 different ones doing the same thing? but this is it. the president said that raising the debt ceiling would be a mistake but now that he's president he's changed his mind. the hip hypocrisy of that is whi think makes americans unhappy. th president said the same thing on war. he said no president should unilaterally go to war without congressional authority and here we are at war in libya with no vote in congress. he says he has a piece of paper from the united nations. we didn't elect the united nations. we have a constitution and it requires tse things be debated in congress. people are unhappy because we're not doing the people's business. we haven't had a budget here in 800 days. do you know what? it's against the law. it's against the law not to ha

republicans that signed it, and that's a pretty big number around here, and that's a pretty bipartisan effort around here. and then i began to despair because i didn't feel like we were making progress toward the goal that we all said -- not all of us but many of us said we wanted to get to, and then today we had this conversation with the gang of six who i think presented a plan, as the senator from texas said, that's not perfect and everybody is going to have a disagreement about this piece or that piece but does meet the three-part test by and large that i have come out to the floor and said time and time again i think we ought to meet for the people of colorado, which is who i represent. and what i also know is this, mr. president. at this remarkable time in the country's history, if we act in a way that leads to a downgrade of this country's credit rating, if we the 100 people that are in the united states senate at this moment don't step up to make sure that that doesn't happen, no one is ever going to care what pledge was made about this or that or where we drew the line in the sand. t
